Hanukkah, is a very special eight-day celebration known as the “festival of lights,” which is steeped in spiritual meaning and brought to life by the more than 80,000 Jewish Clevelanders and their families every year. It’s a ceremonial nod to that one special jar of oil that lasted for a miraculous eight nights during the heroic rededication of the Jewish Temple.
Cleveland is packed with local businesses and organization at the ready to celebrate Hanukkah — whether that is through traditional menorah-lighting events or simply nomming our way through big batches of delicious latkes. Come celebrate with us here in Cleveland.

After you’re done logging about 10,000 steps walking in and out of the holiday-draped stores throughout Crocker Park, head over to The Hyatt Place, centrally located on the property, for a Chanukah celebration sponsored by Chabad of the West Side. Enjoy traditional Chanukah music, take-home crafts, ice-skating for the whole family, cold beer and a latke bar. On top of that, there’ll be a giant menorah lighting and gelt drop. And, don’t leave without stopping by the Chanukah-themed photography studio.

Take a breather this busy holiday season with a night out at Painting with a Twist in Strongsville. Sit down, bring a snack, have a glass (or two) of wine and do a Hanukkah painting (thanks to step-by-step instruction) to take home or gift to a loved one. Not a drinker? No prob; everyone is welcome.
